FireLogEvent

This function triggers an event used to track errors and warnings experienced by players.

For example, it could be called to indicate when a function call fails - such as a datastore save or TeleportService/Teleport. See the example below.

Limits of events

Each game server is allowed a certain number of standard events API calls based on the number of players present (more players means more events will be needed).
The events that exceed the limit will be dropped and log an error to the developer console.

  • Per minute limit: 120 + numPlayers * 20, all events shared this limit.
  • Cooldown: refresh every 10 seconds

Limits of parameters
